Rainwater Harvesting

Rainwater harvesting is an effective and environmentally friendly approach to managing water resources, promoting sustainability, and reducing reliance on conventional water sources.

Rainwater Harvesting

These innovative harvesting systems will help conserve increasingly scarce water resources efficiently, responsibly and intelligently. Clearly the benefits can be realised for the environment and for us all.

We use the very best of engineering principles together with professional, high quality tested products to ensure your investment in our system will give you a cost effective water efficiency system with reliability to last, and of course a beautifully sustained garden.

The process of rainwater harvesting typically involves the following steps:

  • Collection: Rainwater is collected from rooftops, pavements, or other surfaces where rain falls. The most common method is to capture rainwater from roofs by using gutters and downspouts.
  • Filtration: The collected rainwater may be filtered to remove debris, leaves, and other contaminants. This can be done through simple mesh filters or more advanced filtration systems depending on the intended use of the harvested water.
  • Storage: Filtered rainwater is then stored in tanks, cisterns, or underground reservoirs. These storage systems can vary in size and capacity depending on the amount of rainfall and the anticipated water demand.
  • Treatment (optional): Depending on the intended use, harvested rainwater may require additional treatment. 
  • Distribution and use: The stored and, if necessary, treated rainwater can be used for various purposes.
We can evaluate the average rain water in your area, work out the size of your roof area and recommend a tank and installation especially to suit you and your garden's needs.

Benefits of Rainwater Harvesting

Water conservation

It helps to reduce the demand on traditional water sources such as groundwater and surface water bodies, thus conserving water resources.

Cost savings

Using harvested rainwater can reduce water bills, especially for non-potable uses like irrigation, which can result in significant cost savings over time.

Flood control

By capturing and storing rainwater, the load on stormwater drainage systems is reduced, potentially mitigating the risk of flooding during heavy rainfall.
